The first data modality to be released from the Allen Brain Observatory is a standardized in vivo survey of physiological activity in the mouse visual cortex, featuring representations of visually evoked calcium responses from GCaMP6-expressing neurons in selected cortical layers, visual areas and Cre lines. From the landing page you can view the cre-line, the visual area and the depth of each of the experiments conducted in this survey.

More information on the experimental setup and the visual stimuli are available in other Help (links to http://ihelp/display/observatory/Allen+Brain+Observatory+-+Visual+CodingImage Removed) pages and in the Brain Observatory app (links to http://sobservatory/visualcoding/Image Removed ).

This release includes a variety of data visualization summaries capturing visual coding properties of single cell and cell population responses to sensory stimuli. Detailed information regarding each of the Visual Stimuli is available by clicking on the stimulus from the panel below the cortical experiment map.
